The Wilderness Systems Radar 135 is an exceedingly versatile fishing kayak. It can be paddled with a traditional kayak paddle, pedaled with the new Helix PD Pedal Drive, or powered by the Helix MD Motor Drive. The SMART hull technology combines stability, maneuverability, acceleration, responsiveness and tracking for optimal performance in multiple water environments and configurations. Design elements include an upswept bow for a dry ride, a defined keel line for excellent tracking, a rockered chine for responsive steering and a flat, stable platform for standing and freedom of movement in flat to rough water. The Radar features state of the art outfitting including the SlideTrax rails, multiple storage hatches, and generous rear tankwell storage. The AirPro Max seat is as comfortable as it is functional; its quick-drying, breathable mesh fabric won't fade in the sun, the quick-adjust levers let you slide the seat fore and aft, and it can be stored vertically to open up the deck for stand up fishing.

Took her on her maiden voyage last week. I can’t express how stable this kayak is. Stand on top is more like it!
I've owned a few different paddle kayaks. I ended up getting a Ride 135, and it was the best all around fishing kayak in my opinion. I naturally wanted the Radar 135 and I'm glad I got it. For obvious reason it was an upgrade to the Ride 135. Similar features with some added to improve the hull design. The helix pedal drive is comfortable and a game changer over paddling. The low deck design should help in windy conditions but still leaves a vast amount of room on the deck to move around. The airport max seat is unbeatable and overall the kayak is one of the best looking on the market in my opinion. Definitely happy with the purchase and ACK was helpful with all my questions as always. I don't know if I'll ever switch from a Wildy Kayak!
